Sale season

Or why it sucks to be a mannequin in Hong Kong.

Can you feel it? Can you hear it? Can you smell it? The scent of pre-sale season has been replaced by sale season in the air. If aliens landed in their spaceship in the middle of a shopping mall, they'd be confronted with the sight of seething women-beasts ravaging the shelves, leaving half-priced knit tops cosmetic-streaked and mutilated in their wake. Then they'd hightail it out of there as fast as possible and we wouldn't need the likes of Will Smith or other generic action hero to save us.

Not that Hong Kong needs any reason for a sale but you can pick up some very good bargains at this time of the year.



This must be where Bobby Trendy shops at when he's feeling flamboyant. Actually this photo was taken at the last summer sales but I wouldn't be surprised if it's been taken out of the storeroom for another sales blitz attempt. The top is marked down to HK$209 and the pants are an unbelievably low HK$435. No price on the matching choker.

It's a real little bobby dazzler for the incredible level of detail you're getting:



The gauzy scarf adds a touch of whimsy like frosting on a cake made entirely out of frosting. And don't forget the pants too. This is definitely no kindergarten art project we're talking about here:



I like how there's enough embroidery to please a floral jeans aficionado but it doesn't overwhelm the entire length of the pants because nothing screams TACKY! like fully embroidered jeans. Overall, a combination that never goes out of style for tricksy Irish faeries. You'll get lots of wear out of it, especially if you attend parties where the theme is Peter Pan All Grown Up, Out And Starring In A Las Vegas Revue.

About the post after this one, I'm sorry to hear that too. It sounds like you are in immediate need of some shopping / make-over / spa relaxation too. One day, when I'm not a penniless English teacher, I'll come to play in Shanghai Tang.

Doesn't matter if you drop out. You will lose anyway.

I'm slightly terrified that I know people who wouldn't bat an eyelid at wearing such an outfit.

And anonymous, if you're going to be an arse, don't be a chicken shit and put yer name to it, don't hide, it's pitiful.

Who are these losers intimidating you into dropping out of one of the Asia Blog races? People, it's only a blog, even though Spirit Fingers posts some fine quality stuff.

(No, am not fishing for a day out, SF) :)

My stepmom frequently wears more expnsive versions of the above photo and it can make me cringe, but she (thank god) has plenty of simple clothes as well.

And BTW, don't let that Anonymous asshole get to you. He/she has no life whatsoever.

Thanks everyone! Trust me I am intimidated easily and I do not hesitate to exercise my prerogative to run like a little a girl screaming for the hills. Seriously, I hate such hassles and hope that Simon checks his email soon.

It takes 30 - 45 minutes for showing Generic Viagra effect and this effect lasts for almost four hours. If you take cheap Viagra after a high-fat meal (such as fish & chips, cheeseburger or French fries), it may take a little longer to start working. Viagra sale should not be taken more than once a day unless prescribed by your doctor.
